Commodore Notes
Vanderbilt played only two games during the week topping #15 South Carolina twice before Sunday's series finale was rained out... The series sweep of the Gamecocks is the first ever for the Commodores... Vandy held down South Carolina on Friday night to win 3-2... Kevin Ziomek was outstanding, tossing seven scoreless innings before finally allowing a run in the eighth, earning his ninth win of the season... Brian Miller allowed a home run in the ninth but still notched his 13th save of the year... Spencer Navin's two-run homer in the second inning gave the Dores the lead and Mike Yastrzemski helped manufacture the eventual winning-run in the sixth... Vanderbilt clinched the series on Saturday behind another stellar start from Tyler Beede... The sophomore carried a no hitter into the seventh inning for the second time this season en route to winning his 12th game in his 12th start of the year... Zander Wiel, Vince Conde and Mike Yastrzemski all had three-hit games as the Dores outhit the Gamecocks 14-3... Sunday's rainout was the first of the season for Vandy... The series victory is the 12th of the season and 16th straight dating back to last year and eighth sweep of the year, including six in Southeastern Conference play... The Commodores return home to host Presbyterian on Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. before heading to #23 Kentucky for a weekend series.
